So is true for the Muttahidda Qaumi Movement (MQM) in Karachi. If they get themselves organized and strengthened again, they would regain the votes they lost to the Imran Khan’s Tehrik-e-Insaaf. It would be a very hard task for MQM though, as they totally failed to deliver peace and progress to the people of Karachi [...]
I was reading a tweet from Ghazala that its certain that MQM will sweep in Karachi, and PPP would be the majority party in interior Sindh, tribal leaders would get seats in Balochistan, and FATA would go to the independent candidates.

In today’s Pakistani politics, two things are the greatest assets if you are a politician in Pakistan. One is electability and the other is media-savviness. If you can win your seat from your constituency and if you can speak good at TV talkshows, you are precious than gold and diamond for any party in Pakistan.
